Item Description...
Offers practical tools for exploring and identifying one's uniqueness, motivating people to put their strengths to work and to find and live in their "sweet spot" for the rest of their lives.

Publishers Description

"Sweet spot." Golfers understand the term. So do tennis players. Ever swung a baseball bat or paddled a Ping-Pong ball? If so, you know the oh-so-nice feel of the sweet spot. Life in the sweet spot rolls like the downhill side of a downwind bike ride. But you don't have to swing a bat or a club to know this. What engineers give sports equipment, God gave you.A zone, a region, a life precinct in which you were made to dwell. He tailored the curves of your life to fit an empty space in his jigsaw puzzle. And life makes sweet sense when you find your spot.

But if you're like 87 percent of workers, you haven't found it. You don't find meaning in your work--or you're one of the 80 percent who don't believe their talents are used. What can you do? You're suffering from the common life, and you desperately need a cure.

Best-selling author Max Lucado has found it. In Cure for the Common Life he offers practical tools for exploring and identifying your own uniqueness, motivation to put your strengths to work, and the perfect prescription for finding and living in your sweet spot for the rest of your life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
What the other don't tell you...  Mar 12, 2007
I've read a lot of the other reviews--and they are right. This is a good book. However, what I don't see is a general warning: THIS BOOK IS HARD! For the 87% of us not in our sweet spots, you really have to peel back layers of self-defense and coping mechanisms that get you through the day-to-day grind of work. It's worth it, but as truths surface, they ripple. There is pain with this growth, but stick with it. The truth's worth it. Very life changing.
Read this book.  Feb 25, 2007
Read this book. Lucado gives the reader a place to start if searching, and a place to go if content. Whether you process all of the layers contained within or not, this book is well-worth the time to digest. Do yourself a favor...take a moment, eat some blackberries, and find a quiet place to enjoy this work. Bravo, Max!
fresh freedom & celebrate the amazing individual U are!  Feb 10, 2007
This book takes YOU as the amazing individual you are and walks you through what life is now, and what you will be the most content doing, down to each last part of your personality traits, likes, and dislikes. It is one of the most personal books I have read ever and yet it gave me such a clear view of who I am, to celebrate it and not waste my time living other paths.
Everyone should read this book ASAP.
What fresh freedom and encouragement.
Some absolutely wonderful perspectives  Jan 29, 2007
This is the first Lucado book I've ever read. He introduces some interesting perpectives: for example, that we each come to Earth with tools in the "bag God packed for us" to fulfill our destinies. While that may not be a new concept, he explains it so beautifully, as a tool to help me in my life's journey. The whole point in life is to use our time, talents, and every other gift we're given to help others, like Christ Himself did and continues to do -- rather than to focus on ourselves, which brings misery only.

Though this book is quite well-written and by a very religious man, some of the points are not scripture, nor doctrine. It's a great book, a great tool -- but please do not neglect your regular scripture study when reading this book.
Cure for the Common Life - Review by Trish New, author of The Thrill of Hope and South State Street Journal  Jan 16, 2007
NOTE: If you are seeking truth, regardless of where you are in life, this book is encouraging and educational. It would be helpful if these concepts were taught children so that the ones who perceive it can travel smoothly into their destiny. I was way into my journey before I realized the impact of this message and I'm not sure everyone "gets it."
Golfers and tennis players understand the term "sweet spot." For life, there is a zone, a region, a life precinct in which you were made to dwell. And life makes sweet sense when you find your spot. Seventy percent of workers haven't found it. If you find work to be dull and your talents wasted, you're suffering from the common life, and you desperately need a cure. Max Lucado has found one. He offers practical tools for exploring and identifying your own uniqueness, your forte, your niche in life. He motivates you to put your strengths to work and has just the prescription for finding that place. He says, "You are heaven's Halley's comet; we have one chance at seeing you shine. You offer a gift to society that no one else brings. If you don't bring it, it won't be brought. So find it and bring it! And when you do, both you and God will smile." Practical assessment tools are included in the back of the book to apply the powerful principles of cure, helps you clarify your abilities. Lucado gives examples of people who didn't have a clue where they were going and how they came to work at something they love to do. Within you is all you need to live a wonderful life. You just need a little help defining it. Lucado says, "... Your Father is too gracious to assign you to a life of misery. As Thomas Aquinas wrote, `Human life would seem to consist in that in which each man most delights, that for which he especially strives, and that which he particularly wishes to share with his friends.' I recently met a twenty-year-old who needed to hear this. Just discharged from the military, he was pondering his future. He bore a square jaw, a forearm tattoo, and a common question. He didn't know what to do with the rest of his life. As we shared a flight, he told me about his uncle, a New England priest. "What a great man," the ex-soldier sighed. "He helps kids and feeds the hungry. I'd love to make a difference like that." So I asked him the question of this chapter. "What were some occasions when you did something you love to do and did it well?" He dismissed me at first. "Aw, what I love to do is stupid." "Try me," I invited. "Well, I love to rebuild stuff." "What do you mean?" He spoke of an old coffee table he had found in a garage. Seeing its potential, he shaved off the paint, fixed the broken legs, and restored it. With great pride, he presented it to his mom. "Tell me another time," I prompted. "This one is really dumb," he discounted. "But when I worked at a butcher shop, I used to find meat on the bones others threw out. My boss loved me! I could find several pounds of product just by giving the bone a second try." As the plane was nosing down, I tested a possibility with him. "You love to salvage stuff. You salvage furniture, salvage meat. God gave you the ability to find a treasure in someone else's trash." My idea surprised him. "God? God did that?" "Yes, God. Your ability to restore a table is every bit as holy as your uncle's ability to restore a life." You would have thought he'd just been handed a newborn baby. As my words sank in, the tough soldier teared up... So go ahead; reflect on your life. What have you always done well and loved to do? ... The oak indwells the acorn. Read your life backward and check your supplies. Rerelish your moments of success and satisfaction. For in the merger of the two, you find your uniqueness.
Trish New, author of The Thrill of Hope and South State Street Journal.
